Does anyone else seem like they are always on the hunt for the perfect brow kit/color/application? I know I am. I find myself switching between products often, not being completely satisfied with one product. Recently I was introduced to Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques. This is a Utah based company that focuses on providing us women with makeup that is actually healthy for us. It is made with natural and organic ingredients. It is also cruelty free and EU Certified, which means their products go above and beyond the US cosmetic standards.
Hey all! Have you guys heard of the collagen trend going on right now? I first heard about it and the benefits of it earlier in the year, while I was pregnant. I heard that it was specifically really good for your hair, nails, and skin, and all I could think about is how I need in on this because we all know how much our hair falls out postpartum. (well mine at least, anyways, ugh!)
Collagen is naturally produced in our body, but once we hit a certain age, the production dramatically decreases and the signs of aging start setting in. Supplementing collagen daily can help to counteract this. Now, I am no doctor, but I talked to my midwife and was given the go ahead to start this. I have been taking it daily for about 2 weeks and I have noticed my nails are growing like crazy, and seem super strong. I am anxious to see the effects that it has on my hair, if it will help with postpartum hair loss.
Well everyone, here it is! Remi’s room is still a work in progress, and at 4 months old, she still isn’t sleeping in there yet. Oh well! Seeing how Saylor never had a “real” nursery (we were in an apartment), I was excited to give Remi her own cute little space. I love girly, classic things and I think that shows in her room. I also wanted to find pieces that I could use for years, and possibly in other rooms down the road, not just as nursery decor.

Thank you to Evenflo for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
I was so excited to partner with Evenflo on their Minno Twin Double Stroller. Remi hates her car seat, so I was on the hunt for a functional double stroller. What I liked about this Evenflo stroller, is that the girls could be side by side, so Saylor could help Remi, and Remi could see her. I was also looking for something that would be lightweight and easy to fold up. Ain’t nobody got time to lug a big, chunky stroller around with 2 kids.
Hi all! I thought I would pop on here to document a little about Remi, as she turns 3 months on Thursday! I also wanted to showcase this beautiful jute rug from Serena & Lily. I am ultimately going to use it in Remi’s room…but I ended up ordering a new crib for her so that won’t be ready for another few weeks. I decided to put it in Saylor’s room for the time being, and it is going to be hard to move it out, haha…I love it!
Cute Remi is starting to fill out. It is funny having a long, skinny baby because Saylor was always so chubby! The last week or so she has been a little bit easier, and if you have been following us, you know that she has been a hard baby! She naps fairly well during the day, but during the night she wakes up every 2-3 hours. Yikes. She is a great nurser and is getting super smiley and discovering new noises and sounds.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have been using Image for a while now, and that I have really been loving it. I tend to use a lot of different products, and never use a certain system for long enough to see if it really does work for my skin, but when I got my Image products I told myself I was going to use only them. I have noticed my skin is more smooth and not as red.
Here are the products I have been using:
I’m excited to be giving away a few great products! Anyone who uses Image knows how good it is, so I hope you will join the train! Be sure you head to my IG to find out how you can win your own products.
Happy Thursday, everyone! This week has been so long and very eventful, I am glad it is almost over. We decided to buy a new couch, sell our old one and a couple of chairs, have a backsplash put up & a new light fixture in our dining room…all spur of the moment decisions, and all while Remi has been not sleeping and fussy. I’m starting to wonder if she is a little colicky, but that is a post for another day.
The weather has been SO hot and humid here lately, so honestly I haven’t been going out much! It doesn’t help that Remi hates her carseat, and I don’t shower 50% of the time…haha #momlife. When it isn’t too hot, we like to go on a little walk around the neighborhood. I actually think Remi enjoys the warm weather and that it relaxes her.
Does anyone else’s kid love to be swaddled? Remi will not sleep without being all wrapped up tight. Otherwise her arms always flail around and she’ll wake herself up, it is pretty funny. Saylor never liked being swaddled, so I have been on the hunt for the perfect swaddle that keeps Remi tight and that she can’t escape out of!
What I love about this Halo Sleepsack Swaddle is that you can swaddle them 3 different ways. As your baby grows, so does this swaddle. It is a soft, breathable material and comes in super cute patterns. I also love that it zips from the bottom up, so you don’t have to unswaddle them completely for diaper changes! I appreciate that Halo is passionate about Safe Sleep situations, and tries to educate us. Their swaddles are made so our babes don’t need any extra blankets…it really gives me peace of mind that Remi is comfortable, warm enough, and not needing anything extra! We need to do our very best to keep our littles safe, and that can start from where and how they sleep. You can find out more about sleep safety HERE.
Okay hear me out. I know I have said time and time again that I am going to start working out and get back into shape, but this time I really am holding myself to it! I think for my sanity alone, I need to “just do it” (no pun intended). I don’t know when I lost my affinity for working out, but I suppose it was sometime between the ages of 21-24. So a long, long time ago! Growing up I was so active and athletic, and I even feel like I’m so uncoordinated now. I don’t know what the heck happened, but it is going to change! And I want/need you to help hold me acocuntable.
I have talked about my love for Bamboobies before, and now that I have been nursing for a month, I’m here to tell you my favorites products and why! I am blessed that nursing has come easy for me, but really great products make it even easier. Since the hospital, I have lived, and I mean lived 24/7, in these nursing tanks. They are soft, so comfortable (not too tight or too loose), and the perfect amount of support. I don’t want to put anything else on.
Their nursing pads are also my favorite. The reusable ones are SO SOFT and “cutesy”, not that it matters, but it helps! And the disposable ones are the perfect size and don’t get all gross after 2 seconds.
